Suggest treatment for sore throat and ear pain

Why do I have a sore throat/neck , slight ear pain,soreness on the roof of my mouth ,tongue & jaw after a night of heavy drinking? The symptoms have been here for 6 days now. I have had this feeling in the past after drinking too much but it never lasted more than a day or two. I have been taking ibuprofen to ease the pain.

Welcome to Healthcare magic...
This could be an viral infection of throat..resolve on its own virus in a week or ten days...the pain ear is referred pain from throat due to same nerve supply ..nothing to worry ...continue ibuprofen for pain relief..take tab rabeprazole 20 mg once in early morning before food for 7 days could be gastric reflux too...wish you a speedy recovery....
